Back by popular demand (am I really using that term correctly!?), Sixties and Forty20 conduct their own review of the 2020 season for the Parramatta Eels.
Starting with the big picture of the team’s 3rd place finish, the boys pull apart Parramatta’s best regulation season finish since 2005 before contrasting the Eels’ scorching start to their scrappy finish. While the Eels didn’t have any long-term injuries, a series of disruptive blows to their spine played a factor in their struggles and the duo discuss how much of a factor that was to the back-end of the campaign.
At the end of 2019, Junior Paulo issued a challenge to himself and his teammates to aspire to representative honours in the following year in order to better themselves and the team. Fast-forward 12 months and 3 of his comrades in Clinton Gutherson, Nathan Brown and Reagan Campbell-Gillard as well as his himself have earned selections for the NSW Blues. Forty20 and Sixties chat about how these four men can elevate themselves and their fellow Eels in 2021 on the back of representative selection.
The lads round out the round-table on 2020 looking at where the Eels hurt themselves the most and the exciting amount of room they have to grow before scouting out a trio of freshly announced new recruits.
